Samsung Galaxy Tab Reviews - Engadget, Gizmodo, GSMArena

Samsung Galaxy Tab is out. If you have not tried it, it may be wise to visit some good website reviewers. The Tab is more expensive than the iPad. Some stores in the Netherlands already putting a price tag of €749. Before you get one, here's some reviews :

Engadget Reviews :
  • Nice screen although not amoled
  • Liked the smaller size for a tablet
  • Responsive capacitive screen, catching up the iPad
  • Solid Browser
  • Not a great camera but still takes decent shots
  • No HD recording, but smooth motion capture
  • Battery life : quite good, but not as long as iPad
  • Does not charge when pluggen into a laptop, but just maintaining it's charge

Gizmodo Review :
Gizmodo may not be in favour of the Galaxy Tab. They didn't like the smaller screen and feels like a big smartphone

  • Dense and sturdy feel
  • good battery life

Don't likes
  • Tablet drunkenly hooked up with a phone
  • Miserable browser, goes laggy.
  • Won't charge when plug to a laptop
  • No decent cameras

Different Opinions right..? The best way for you is to try it after all. But I think it's wise to wait a little more for settlement, applications, and the release of Blackberry Playbook (unless you're not a Blackberry fan).
